Goat Cheese & Asparagus Grilled Cheese

Who else went overboard and bought nearly 6lbs of asparagus because it was $.88/lb? Welcome to the hoarder club! Who else has eaten roasted asparagus for breakfast, lunch, and dinner pretty much every day? Welcome to the we-clearly-don’t-understand-hoarding club! Cheap asparagus means two things: 1) Spring is just around the corner (and seriously, could it [...]

Baked Turkey & Cranberry Sliders with Browned Sage Butter

‘Tis the season to pour melted butter on *&^#! –Me. Festive and classy. That Jason is one lucky guy. I did mean it when I said that the internet will always have room for one more baked slider recipe. And I did mean it when I said that this was the season to pour melted [...]

Bacon & Cranberry Chutney

Even before the last of those lovely bacon jam-filled pretzel rolls disappeared, I’d already staked out the idea of combining the bacon jam with cranberries for a spread-on-anything and stuff-in-everthang twist on cranberry sauce.

Baked Croque Monsieur Sliders

The internet has given us a great, great many gifts. Cats. And not the happy ones. Although I’m in the camp that believes that there is no such thing as a happy cat. (And if the lighting is right and you worked hard enough, you might have seen the scar on my hip to back [...]

Black & White Tacos

There’s bar food. And then there’s post-bar food. Those tacos, those fell into the latter category. After college, I predictably kept the safety-net low-paying, entry-level job as a drone at SkyNet that I used to pay my some of my way through school to work for a bunch of people who undervalued me only slightly [...]

Burgers with Spicy Bourbon-Peach Chutney

I keep seeing all these “Peace out, summer!” references everywhere and I can’t help but be a little bit jealous. And by a little bit, I mean I’m totally drowning my sorrows in a Jealousy Sundae sprinkled with a super immature (and inappropriate) hand gesture and topped with some nondairy whipped depression. Because it will [...]

The Fig Burger

A burger so nice that last week, we had it twice. In a row. Seriously. Fancy burgers have been a thing around here for a while (Exhibit A. And Exhibit B.) but this one is my new summer favorite. Do you like figs? And caramelized onions? And wine? And burgers that you have to transfer [...]

Chicken Cheesesteaks with Queso and Pico de Gallo. The Quesosteak!

Chicken Cheesesteaks with Queso and Pico de Gallo

So… I kind of signed up for a marathon this week. And by “kind of,” I mean that they have my money and I have a link to a training program. I guess that’s mostly fair. That program is exactly as long as as I have until “my” marathon. And is supposed to be exactly [...]
